It has been sometime since my last update. This time, I would like to share my Reiki experience which I had a chance to formally enrolled into recently. Just like qigong, Reiki has also branches out to multiple disciplines and all sort of new reiki breed. Anyway, the original would be the Usui Reiki as this was based on the original teaching from the Usui Master himself.
First of all, it is all about the chi/ki/qi whatever you want to call it. It is a great advantage for people who already have experience dealing with chi as this will help you to further refine your technique and chi level. Reiki is unique in the sense that it makes use of several symbols which are used together when doing healing and other activities. All the symbols has its own features and tasks to perform and used together to create greater impact.
Personally, I see the symbol usage here is more of making a mind anchoring to blend with the qi categories. Out of the four symbols, the most powerful would be the Usui Master Symbol which is called "Dai Ko Mio". Now, this symbol and program that is embedded with it has been around for 100 of years. It is really up to the practitioner wheather he or she can really feel the difference in the level of the qi through all other other symbols like "Cho Ko Rei", "Se He Kei" and "Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen". If you ask me, I am good with "Cho Ko Rei", it blends really well with the flow of my qi when Im thinking of "Bai Hui" and "Yun Chuen".
Lights, Colour and Chakra.
Ok, the reasoning behind the play of the lights and colours are basically the frequency. Since all the Seven Major Chakra have its own lights and colours varies to the position of its Chakra. The treatment of hand position or beaming and the lights and colors used would be depending on the location of the sickness. Briefly, red is used for sickness related to bones, blood circulation and the likes. Orange is the color of the sacral chakra where in qigong is somewhat at the "dantien". The use of this colour can be related to the problem circirling around the stomach area like pancreas, big/small intestines, etc. Next is the solar plexus chakra and the color is yellow. It is located in the center below the diafgram. Others would be the heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras. I wont go into details cause there are tons of information regarding the chakras on the net.
Anyway, what I would like to stress here is that qigong practitioners should blend the colours with their chi to make it greater impact as that would harmonize the area with the relevant frequency.
To cut short, this is where the process of installing the symbols programs in accordance to the chakra level into the student by the master. It will start with simple meditation as to get the student to lower down the frequency to Alpha or subconcious mind to receive the suggestions. The master will transfer the qi embedded with the symbols programs as this will triger the students once they start using the symbols. So, only ppl who receive the attunement can use the symbols effectively. I am not saying that people who are not receiving attunement will not work, but the level of chi quality might be different. This is also a way of how the Japanese people making sure that it is kept within the circle.
Reiki has a good system, more structured and suitable for people which require logic reasoning and creativity can be applied to make it more versatile. And as usual, you need to practise..Shout out goes to Master Mir, Lufti and Ismi. Thank you guys.
